We're clueing you into two must-attend happenings this weekend: Buttermilk Jamboree and The Market, presented by Avenue for the Arts. Tom VanHammen and Megan Baker of Circle Pines Center invite listeners to make the short trip south south to enjoy this first iteration of a sustainability and music festival with over 30 performers and workshops galore from how to play a washtub basin to how to preserve food. Meanwhile, Jenn Schaub, Taylor Greenfield and Christie Westmaas invite everyone to come down to Division Avenue on Saturday afternoon to patron local artists and musicians, who are putting out their best wares and performances on the second Saturday of each summer month.
Music this episode is "Something from above" off Pretty As You by Orpheum Bell, one of the performers at Circle Pines this weekend.
